  • Aero Optima
  • Aero Groove (Indoor and greens below 12 seconds)


You can’t look past the fact that Aero Bowls are made with the most state of the art technology. CNC machines with Diamond Laser cutting. Knowing the bowls are made by robots with no human error gives me all the confidence I need. I know the exact weight, size and characteristics of my equipment which is very important competing at the highest level.

Walter and Sharon Jacobs pour their heart in to AeroBowls and have supported me for almost 10 years.

CAREER GOALS: To retire early and manage a resort somewhere warm

MOST ADMIRED PLAYER: John Snell OAM - Unbelievable playing record along with his dedication to the sport. John has been my mentor and huge supporter over my career.

FAVOURITE GREENS: Broadbeach Green 4 is the best green I have played on. Clean hands and great speed.

FAVOURITE QUOTE: "The river cuts through rock, not because of its power, but because of its persistence."

OTHER HOBBIES & INTERESTS: Golf, reading autobiography’s, travel, fitness and fashion.
